DUBAI, — Potential investors are invited to tender their application to obtain an operational licence for the recently launched Tad-beer Service Centres before 13th April, 2017.

Applications will be evaluated on 20th April and 11th May, followed by feedback reports by 15th May to start the pre-operational phase.

Aisha Belharfia, Assistant Under-Secretary for Domestic Worker Affairs, recently met with over 150 potential investors in Dubai to discuss related challenges, as well as present terms and regulations.

“We have placed a list of requirements and conditions to the investors, to assure the customer’s happiness and provide quality services that reflect the UAE’s outstanding government service programme,” Belharfia said.

“Applicants aged 21 or above are welcome to apply, but ministry staff or first-degree families are excluded. Investors and partners must provide a good conduct report prior to the request,” she added. “Applicants must provide the ministry with a bank guarantee of AED500,000,” she further added.

The centres must be inviting, spacious and accessible. Proposed locations for the centres must be on the ground floor and fitted out according to a design set by the ministry, with a minimum area of 4,000 square feet. Customer parking must also be available.
